"...when someone files an application to build a new station or to renew, sell, or modify an existing station, the FCC generally requires the applicant to make a series of local announcements to inform the public of the application's existence and nature. These announcements are either published in a local newspaper or made over the air on the station, and are intended to give the public an opportunity to comment on the application. A statement certifying compliance with this requirement, including the dates and times that notice was given, must be placed in the public file. The only exception to this public notice requirement is when the proposed station sale is “pro forma” and will not result in a change of ultimate control, or the modification
application does not contemplate a “major change” of the station facilities." quote from FCC document, "The Public and Broadcasting"
